Well, of course, nurture. But if you were raised to be frugal, can you ever not be frugal?  Doesn't frugality feel genetic?   If you have been fortunate in life to move from poverty to working poor or working poor to lower middle class or even middle middle class (the only socio-economic… MORE

About this Cook
I've been retired for about a year and LOVE retirement so far! I have three children: two boys and a girl, all grown. Five grands, all grandsons, ages almost eighteen to just turned nine.
My favorite things to cook
I cook for one or two most of the time and like to prepare multiple servings and either eat 'em up over a couple of days, or use a foodsaver to freeze the leftovers. We try to watch the sodium and cholesterol so we eat a lot of vegetables and very few pre-packaged foods. As a general rule, we try to avoid purchasing anything with ingredients we can't pronounce or very l-o-n-g ingredient lists.

Israeli Tomato and Cucumber Salad
Good salad. I'm not familiar with Israeli salad, but a ratio of one English cucumber to one Roma tomato would, I think, be a cucumber salad =) ... I scaled the recipe to two servings and used nearly equal amounts of English cuke and halved grape tomatoes (all I had). Nice light summertime salad.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf
This was just okay for me. Personal preference...because the pilaf and asparagus are prepared separately and stirred together at the end, I would rather have my usual brown/wild rice mix with asparagus on the side. I followed the recipe except to follow the liquid/rice ratio on the back of the bag of rice, decrease butter to 2T, increase onion to 1/2 cup, and increase the asparagus to almost one pound (pre-trimming). For meal-planning purposes, I would consider this dish a starch and a vegetable. As written, to me, it's five servings...nowhere near eight. I appreciate the recipe and glad I tried it, but won't make again just personal preference.

Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken
Excellent. I used all of the ingredients in the marinade, but didn't blend them, and I cooked the chicken on the stovetop.
